By Richard David Precht

«¿Cómo escribir un libro sobre el amor? ¿Sobre algo tan privado, velado, maravillosamente ilusorio como el amor? De este libro no aprenderá usted nada que mejore sus habilidades en el dormitorio. Tampoco le ayudará en caso de ataques de celos, penas de amor y pérdida de confianza. Y no contiene sugerencias y apenas buenos consejos para los angeles convivencia diaria en pareja. Aunque quizá pueda contribuir a que usted se vuelva más consciente de unas cuantas cosas que antes le resultaban poco claras; a que tenga ganas de sondear con mayor exactitud este reino loco en el que (casi) todos queremos vivir. Y posiblemente piense usted conmigo un poco en las reacciones que ha consolidado como normales y supuestas. Quizá tenga ganas de proceder con usted mismo en el futuro un poco más inteligentemente; aunque, naturalmente, sólo si y cuando usted quiera.»

It additionally paves the best way for The Anti-Christ, Nietzche’s ultimate attack on institutional Christianity, within which he identifies himself with the ‘Dionysian’ artist and confronts Christ; the one opponent he feels valuable of him.

In his creation Michael Tanner mentioned the topics of Nietzche’s argument and locations the works of their old and philosophical context.

Example text

When I have the knowledge and competence to do so, and I think a philosopher outside the mainstream of the Western tradition has an interesting perspective that I can bring to bear, I will bring that philosopher into the conversation. I am not satisfied with my knowledge of the Indian and 42 Philosophy at 3:AM Islamic traditions yet, however. I wish I could fission myself and lead three philosophical lives in constant contact with each other! 3:AM: You have some really wild thought experiments, and as a science fiction fan I want to ask you to talk about a couple!

I deny that the thesis is counterintuitive. It’s commonsensical to think that if what’s at issue really matters, you need to do more work in order to know something. Knowing that a country poses a threat to the United States requires a huge amount of investigation, if what is at stake is the decision to go to war. 3:AM: Another area that you have intervened in is that of intention in action. There’s been a lot of recent interest in this subject through the 2011 book Essays on Anscombe’s Intention.

And although ethicists tended to say they see more moral value in donating blood, donating organs, and donating money than did other professors, the apparent rate at which they actually do those things appears to be no different overall. And of course there’s Nazism, which I have already mentioned. So I’m inclined to think that we now have systematic empirical evidence, which we didn’t have before, that ethicists in fact behave no better, on average, than do other professors, at least in the United States and Nazi Germany.
